The District of Columbia Department of Health (DOH) encourages parents or guardians to obtain required physical exams and vaccinations for their children before the start of the 2017-2018 school year. Completing well-child exam and immunization requirements ensure the safety and well-being of the entire community. Please contact your doctor or clinic now to avoid a long wait for last minute appointments.
Immunizations are the single most important way to protect your family against serious and sometimes deadly diseases.
The DC DOH Immunization Program works with families, providers and community partners to make sure children and adults in the District are protected against the vaccine-preventable disease.
